Acupuncture for stop smoking

If you are a smoker, surely you have tried to quit the harmful habit for your health more than once. Perhaps all is not lost and you should try some technique of Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture and more

Smoking = disease

Smoking is now considered one of the major health problems and greater impact on the health of society, both as regards the active and the passive smoker.

When the smoker is proposed to quit smoking, faces different levels of dependence (physical, psychological and behavioral). Because of physical dependence smoking or nicotine syndrome arises, one of the toughest tests that a smoker who wants to leave the snuff will suffer. The most common symptoms are compulsive desire to smoke, irritability, nervousness, headache, poor concentration, sleep disturbance, mood declined, fatigue, anxiety, yawning, watery, tasteless mouth, throat discomfort, chest tightness, nausea, tremors muscle delayed reaction, etc.. This syndrome occurs after cessation or reduction of the amount of nicotine consumed.

The smoker must overcome psychological and behavioral dependence to snuff, but in terms of physical dependence, there are several methods to overcome it. One of them is the Traditional Chinese Medicine. Over the past 20 years, there have been several clinical studies showing that traditional Chinese medicine is an effective therapy to treat smoking quit syndrome. The techniques employed in this task are the Ear with setting seeds in the earlobe, the cranepunture which is the painless insertion of very fine needles into certain points of the scalp, acupressure, etc.

The mechanism of acupuncture in the treatment of smoking withdrawal symptoms has been also studied and one of the most striking results is the change in taste of the patients, who on returning to try a cigarette suffer headaches and nausea, which avoids own temptations and behavioral dependence.

Acupuncture is GREAT, and I'm so glad you wrote this article because really I feel that it is sorely misunderstood, especially here in western cultures. I know a woman who actually used it to treat her chronic cystitis adn she swears by it! By combing it with Chinese herbs, she has had amazing results.

I was thinking on quitting smoking since a long time ago but I?m not sure if I can do it, I just been doing this since a really long time and it?s hard for me, well anyway I told my wife I would try this for the her birthday and well, I?ll combine some nicotine patches with an alternative medicine to see better results, I hope this works, I really do?
